Finish Well like Bolt.
And let nothing halt.
Bolt off like lightning,
When others are sleeping.

Make your election sure.
See the open door.
Ward off distraction.
Avoid contention.

Finish well your race,
Looking at Jesus’ face.
You’ve got what it takes,
Despite your mistakes.

See those gone before,
And rise from the floor.
Rise and go for gold,
And let nothing hold.

Do your training well.
Your story will sell.
Yours is the trophy.
Yours is the victory.

Employ discipline.
That’s the way to win.
Forgetting the past,
Make a mark that lasts.

Striving for a Crown 
24 Do you not know that those who run in a race all run , but one receives the prize? Run in such a way that you may obtain it.
25 And everyone who competes for the prize is temperate in all things. Now they do it to obtain a perishable crown , but we for an imperishable crown.
26 Therefore I run thus: not with uncertainty. Thus I fight: not as one who beats the air.
27 But I discipline my body and bring it into subjection , lest , when I have preached to others , I myself should become disqualified.
